The wonderfully creative Italian theatre company Teatro Kismet make a welcome return to Poole with this superb adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s timeless fairytale.
Originally created in 2007, this adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Little Mermaid is the fifth production by Teatro Kismet to tour the UK since 1994. It’s easy to see why this Italian company keeps being invited back.
This is the English speaking version of the European reworking of Ludovico’s Japanese commission, which pretty much sums up the global appeal of Teatro Kismet. The Mermaid Princess has been to Italy and France prior to the UK tour and these influences are joyfully apparent, especially in the costume.
